Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG)

What is ESG?

Environmental, social, and corporate governance (“ESG”) concerns continue to dominate the corporate landscape. These issues require nimble, impactful, and thoughtful responses. The Mintz ESG Practice — known for its depth, breadth, and creativity — is prepared to assist corporate boards as they navigate these issues in ever-shifting circumstances. Social, economic, and market dynamics have led to the emergence of social impact investing, mission-driven companies, and investor demands for accountability, all of which are critical concerns for corporate leaders in all sectors.

The Mintz ESG Practice brings together veteran lawyers from a broad spectrum of disciplines who collaborate with one another and with corporate boards, companies, and their investors to deliver cutting edge advice regarding corporate governance and fiduciary duties, securities and disclosure issues, social impact investing, diversity, equity & inclusion programming and recruiting, executive compensation, and employee health and welfare. We also work closely with mission-driven companies, Public Benefit Corporations, and certified “B corporations,” providing guidance to address their unique legal needs.
